My first attempt at sketching on my phone isn't so great.
Here's the thing... phone screens are tiny. It is AMAZING that this is even slightly possible, but it is hard to compose an image. This one kind of looks like a flower throwing up.
I want to make more art and be more involved in my artsy side. I spend a good portion of my time cooking, laundry, cleaning, baby entertaining, errand running... I want to spend some time making something. It feels productive. Somehow doing things like laundry, cooking, and cleaning - things that, once you do them, you will have to do them again tomorrow - don't feel as productive as making an object or an image. You don't have to make an image again and again. You make it the one time and it's there forever.
Today I did a load of laundry, cooked two days' worth of vegetables, took the kids to two different play groups, changed countless diapers, and so on. I'm going to have to do that stuff tomorrow. But this dumb little sketch I made on my phone is done... haha!

That's right! Making art again!
It's been a while since I posted. A lot has happened. A lot a lot. But in the process of trying to find myself again and get back into making art, I am going to start posting here again. Here, the blog I worked on for so many years, the place where I recorded so many of my art related thoughts from November 2007 until almost exactly two years ago in October 2011.
I'm back. It feels... delicious.
